The purpose of this website is to inform the public of the coming disaster that is about to befall us if the current course continues. We are a group of concerned citizens residing in the state of New York and also in the City of New York.
Since the start of the Cuomo administration New York state has become the most moved out of state in the country2.
This year alone the state has experienced a budget shortfall of over 2 billion dollars3.
In the city of New York an agency run by Mayor De Blasios wife cannot account for over $850 million dollars4 of taxpayer money.
The MTA wasted several billion dollars in cost overruns in the construction of the 2nd Avenue line5.
The middle class is disappearing, leaving a state in which only two classes predominate. The cost of living for blue collar workers residing in the state because of higher taxation is becoming unbearable.
The number of homeless living on the streets has ballooned under the current democratic administrations. Crime statistics indicate a rise in crime as well which had been brought down under past administrations6.
As New York becomes the most taxed state in the nation7 the political class in Albany continues to pass bills that raise the burden on remaining taxpayers.
Those who can afford to do so make the burdensome decision to leave the state and leave the remaining residents with a higher tax burden repeating the cycle again.
This process has been called the Curley effect 8 by two Harvard economists. A process whereby in order to secure a voting base towards permanent power, policies are initiated to drive out any potential opposition to maintain a permanent voting base. The result is an increasingly impoverished state with ever larger budgets to bribe the public and an ever decreasing tax base to maintain the scheme.
Unless we change direction in the state we will face an economic collapse in which all of its citizens will suffer the consequences.
To facilitate the necessary changes in our political landscape we are establishing this website as a resource center to inform and educate the public on the spendthrift policies that our political class on both sides of the aisle have been responsible for that have brought us to the edge of both the social and economic collapse we are facing in the very near future.
It is not enough to merely be angry at the current situation. The time for action is now, we either plug the leaks in our sinking ship or we will continue to have to bail out more and more water until the point comes that we can no longer do so.
